The solidified glass side panel of the Ceres 500 is just 3mm thick, whereas most of the previously mentioned completing suppliers are making use of 5mm glass. Directly, I do not like the locking handle system that Thermaltake utilizes on several instances, the Ceres 500 consisted of. This is simply my individual choice though, and also some might truly such as the benefit or look, so I’m not mosting likely to offer it adverse marks for that. I likewise located the sheet steel of the Ceres 500 to be thinner and also a lot more versatile than I would usually such as to see on a framework of this cost.
In a previous Thermaltake room testimonial a couple of motherboard standoffs had actually been mounted cross-threaded from the manufacturing facility. In the Ceres 500 all 3 of the centermost standoff (center top, center row, and also lower row) had actually mored than tightened up, and also removed out the bottoming strings in the motherboard tray. When mounting a motherboard, and also trying to safeguard the screw in any one of these 3 standoffs, they would certainly simply rotate.
I wound up needing to make a short-lived solution by using some very adhesive to the standoff strings where they stick out with the behind of the motherboard tray. I know that this only features as a short-lived solution, and also making use of a little nut to these strings would completely resolve the trouble, yet once again this is a $170 instance. A concern similar to this needs to not occur, and also it appears to be a repeating problem from Thermaltake.
